background: 98 sh, with jdm h22 obd1, m2b4 trans, chipped p28 with harness, i installed the oilpump cps/tdc sensor, obd2 dizzy, checked grounds on tstat, valve cover,trans. installed the correct timing/crank sprockets.



update: i put a test light on the icm wire(yellow/green) at the ecu and with the key turned on, there is power. (It is an obd1 ecu with conversion harness)

yup, everything has power. brand new battery and ground cables. I did notice that the rotor was a little burnt so ill replace it tonight. i dont expect that to fix it, but its one more thing to cross off the list. The thing is everything worked fine when i pulled the motor out (except for that that hole in the piston) so i shouldn't have to replaces this stuff. guess i will start with the cheapest parts first.

its not firing at all though, tested every plug. I tested the dizzy cap, no spark, i tested the icm getting power, i tested the coil, and it tests fine. i tested the yellow/green wire from ecu and it has power.

something is keeping it from spark.

All grounds are connected correctly:bash

if you haven't voltage tested anything then you haven't checked your electrical flow. check for electricity present with a test light or multi meter.

some detail

just wondering some things,

-with the new ECU did you use the same distributor?
-what kind of ECU
-which engine harness are you using?
-wheres the jumper? from the ECU to engine harness? from the CPK sensors to the engine harness?

Just wondering, hope these aint ingnant questions

the distrubitor on the car is the 98 stock one
the ecu on the car is a chipped phearable p28 obd1 unit
the engine harness on the car is the stock 98 one

the ecu is connected using an obd2 to obd1 harness

I have the cps sensor plugged into the stock location wire harness plug.

I am beginning to think that this is all because of the ecu and the immobilizer.
